Nostalgic Buses

An advertisement from Wiesbaden's bus operating company offering oldtimer bus rentals for special occasions or events like company outings, birthday celebrations, etc.

They used an old photo from a bus passing the roman gate in Wiesbaden which is currently under construction (fixing the wooden roof). As soon as they're done, I'll show you how it looks like today.

This photo is taken at the back of the bus stop at the Luisenplatz.

Nicola,
nice shot but, yes your photos of the Roman Gate would be more interesting.
On the German, We took some conversational German classes when my wife was going there quite ofter on business. Until last week she worked for a German company - Degussa who purchased the company about 3 years ago from another German company SKW who had bought out her original company Lucas Meyer German too. I can ask how you are, the time, what things cost, where is the key to my room, tell you what I want to eat and that type of thing. Not much more than that. So please stick to the English.lol
Thanks,
Mark

ggraph/Mark - Roman Gate coming up soon... Alright, I'll stick to english then :). Where was the Degussa office? Is that up in the north (Hamburg) maybe? That's a nice area to visit and travel as well...

The Lucas Meyer headquarters were in Hamburg that too is or was owned by Degussa until a couple of weeks ago. They were part of the sale to Cargil. Degussa is a very big company. Thrir main business is chemicals. Sue was in the Food line of the company. The Degussa corporate offices are in Dusseldorf.

Well, the area around Düsseldorf is a bit more industrial. Hope you enjoyed it nevertheless!
